The New England Patriots lost four straight games but they still have a chance to make the playoffs. NFL analysts can’t ignore the two wins New England had in the last couple of weeks. Patriots players elevated their game and it shows.
New England entered Sunday’s match against the Houston Texans with two straight wins. Their win over the Baltimore Ravens was super brilliant.
Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi says the Patriots are facing a real challenge at the moment. Bruschi doesn’t rule out the Patriots.
“It’s still there for them, I still think it’s going to be very difficult to do,” Bruschi said Wednesday on WEEI’s Ordway, Merloni and Fauria. “It’s strange just because they lose the games they are supposed to win like vs. Denver, and they win the games (they are not supposed to). So, do you think they will beat the Texans? Absolutely. But is it possible that they will lose? Yes. Think you have to look at both sides of the coin going forward.
“I think Cam (Newton) is a huge piece. I think the offensive line is a huge piece that stays negative in results for one, and then keeps playing the way that they are playing. It can go a varied amount of ways in my opinion. They could not make the playoffs, absolutely. They can based on how they played against the Ravens.”
Analysts agree with Bruschi on the Patriots and their playoffs appearance
New England had a really good performance on the field, and this increases their chances of making the playoffs. Things have taken the right direction for the team, and head coach Bill Belichick is satisfied with their performance. The team has made some roster changes and it looks like Belichick has finally found the right formula for his team. Cam Newton has found the perfect spot on the Patriots roster and he works well with his teammates.
New England plays well on offense and defense, and NFL analysts can’t wait to see what happens in the next few weeks. The Patriots are definitely winning the game against the Houston Texans.
